We live in Florida and have guests come down to visit a few times a year but the rest of the time the guest room is not usable with a full bed in it. So we decided to put in murphy style beds into our guest rooms to make them more usable by my wife for her at home business. We got all the plans and hardware from EasyDIYMurphybed.com. We created a custom face for the bed with scrap wood stained different shades to create depth. It was a great project.
